Ewan Gordon, from Bicester, ran the entire length of Great Britain for charity – with a twist.
He ran 1,050 miles, which is the same as 42 back-to-back marathons, and it was all done dressed as Forrest Gump, running 26 miles a day for 42 days from John O’Groats to Lands End and all in memory of a young lad who died from Cockayne Syndrome.
People just think it’s really funny and a lot of people just shout ‘run Forrest run.
I haven’t got a single blister — your body just gets used to running that far every day.
He also claimed that until a cure for Cockayne Syndrome is found, he will not stop running – and given the idea to run dressed as Forrest Gump originally came from a bet, it says a lot about Gordon that he is determined enough to carry on in memory of 9-year-old Thomas Laurie.
